This game was created as a result of a sponsorship deal. Golden Harvest decided to film Thunderbolt in Japan, and needed funding. Kaneko - a relatively minor game developer - provided it, but asked for permission to make a Jackie Chan-based fighting game in exchange. Jackie Chan and other actors were brought in for motion capture work in Tokyo and Hong Kong, which was filmed during the Thunderbolt production.
Connection to Other Media
This game was heavily influenced by its fighting game contemporaries. The controls and moves were similar to those seen in the Fatal Fury series. The zooming camera was taken from Art of Fighting. The visual style and fatalities were based on Mortal Kombat.
